Drive along the coast of Lake Ladoga. Walk through the forests of the Leningrad region. See the beauty of national parks.
The Leningrad region, and especially its northern part, is a unique natural land. There is a rather large array of forests, lakes and national parks. On our trip, we will try to drive through some of them.
In particular, we are thinking of starting the trip by going to the forests near the Gulf of Finland. Then we'll go north towards Vyborg, then we'll turn to Priozersk and along the coast of Ladoga lake we'll go back to St. Petersburg.
